Somebody once said (don't ask me who... 'cause I don't know) "What's the point of talking the talk if you don't walk the walk?" In other words; it's fine and dandy for me to log in here to Reign and flap my gums about empowering our girls with knowledge and confidence, but what's it all really mean if I'm not doing something to make that change? So without further ado...
What do you get when you take 20 preteen girls, 2 pretty cool adults (if I do say so myself), a feel good book, and a ton of fabric, glitter, puffy paint, stickers, and glue?
You get a Real-Deal Workshop, that's what! Take a look!
A big thanks to the Bryant Library in Roslyn, NY for letting us have our first Feel Good Girl Real-Deal Workshop. This one was themed Work your dreams any way you want!, and it was amazing!! The girls were smart, full of energy, and SO in to the idea that with hard work and some no-holding-back imagination, nothing could stop them from making their dreams come true. And now they've got the dream journals (custom-made by themselves, of course) to work that imagination even harder!
This event wasn't just a nice start for the Real-Deal Workshops, it was crazy fun! My friend and business partner (the highly talented and über creative Maria Ackies) and I were worried about handling so many girls at one time, but it was smooooooth sailing. The girls were incredible and we all had a ball. We can't wait to do it again!
Maybe your library or community center is next? Drop us a line and let's set something up!
